156 years ago... in 1859, five thousand people gathered to watch Frenchman Charles Blondin walk across NIAGARA FALLS on a TIGHTROPE. It took him only five minutes. Later, he crossed blindfolded on stilts, pushing a wheelbarrow, and while carrying a man on his back!

116 years ago... in 1899, Charles Murphy became the first person to reach 60 MPH ON A BIKE!

79 years ago... In 1936, Margaret Mitchell's classic novel, "Gone With The Wind," was published.

40 years ago... In 1976, CHER and GREGG ALLMAN were married only four days after Cher divorced SONNY BONO. Cher and Gregg Allman split up nine days later, before eventually getting back together. Sonny skied into a tree and died 23 years later.

39 years ago... in 1976, Police raided NEIL DIAMOND'S home. They didn't find enough marijuana for an arrest, but left with some free albums.

38 years ago... in 1977, GENE SIMMONS authorized the first KISS COMIC BOOK. It sold 500,000 copies. Did you know: the red ink was mixed with small amounts of blood from each group member.

29 years ago... in 1986, in a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that states COULD OUTLAW HOMOSEXUAL ACTS between consenting adults. That ruling was overturned in 2003... when the court decided that what you do in the privacy of your lover's reckty is YOUR business.

27 years ago... in 1988, RONALD REAGAN instituted random drug testing for all White House employees after three guards were suspended for off-duty use of the NOSE CANDY.

22 years ago... 
in 1993, "SPANKY" MCFARLAND of the "Little Rascals"  died in Texas, at 64

21 years ago... in 1994, STONE GOSSARD and JEFF AMENT of PEARL JAM testified at a congressional hearing concerning rising concert ticket prices. EFF TICKETMASTER!

9 years ago... in 2006, JESSICA SIMPSON divorced what was left of NICK LACHEY, after nearly four years of marriage. Remember when we wondered what the hell Nick was doing with her? Well, now that we know she's SEXUAL NAPALM, it all makes sense.

What a weekend it has been...
The Kicker Country Stampede was another HUGE success...The Rolling Stones rocked Arrowhead Stadium, sure they're not a country band, but we all love the Stones.

Sporting KC won another home game and The Royals...What can I say about the Royals?
They swept Oakland on the road...Yes!

Last, but certainly not least...Tonight I have chances for you to win either Aaron Lewis or T-Bones tickets.
Please keep listening for details and YOUR chance to win.

If you need me, I'll be in the studio smiling.  :-)

Here are some random facts for you....

1. Mexico's official name is actually United Mexican States.

2. Missing kids aren't on milk cartons anymore  because the program was a huge failure. Only about 70 missing children were ever featured on milk cartons in the U.S.... and only one was found alive..

3. Only one Adam Sandler film has ever gotten an Oscar nomination. "Click" was nominated for Best Makeup in 2006, but lost to "Pan's Labyrinth"

4. The average American fast food worker is now 29-and-a-half years old.

5. Phosphorus was accidentally discovered in the 1660s by a guy who was boiling his PEE to turn it into gold...

If you're debating between quickly eloping to Vegas or having a massive wedding with 300 guests, a performance by Tom Jones, and a flyover by the Blue Angels.... listen up! put together a calculator that figures out how much money you'd have now if you took your wedding budget and INVESTED it instead. They used the S&P 500 as the basis for their investing.

You just put in how many years you've been married, and how much you spent on your wedding... and it delivers the MORTIFYING TRUTH.

Like, if you got married five years ago and spent $10,000, it would be worth more than $20,000 now!

If you got married 20 years ago and spent $10,000, it would be worth more than $65,000 now!

Just Google ' Did You Spend Too Much On Your Wedding?'

Before you go to Riverfest, take care of your dogs, please.  We may love all the fireworks, pops, bangs and loud explosions, but they are terrifying for your dog. In fact, more dogs are lost on the 4th of July than any other time of the year because they frantically try to escape the noise.  Join TJ McEntire live from Riverfest with Kyle doing traffic to get you to the party till 7pm tonight for the 4th!  Have an epic and safe weekend!  Happy Birthday, America from all of us at Q104!
